Summary: One of the best tech investments I have ever made, no joke. I wish this was still available so I could recommend it to others. "JCEL" Joe's review basically covers any questions you could have about this laptop. I've had it for a year and a half now and it has been consitently excellent, fast, and easy to operate. It's great for gamers, professionals, musicians, etc.

Summary: item was sold used when it was advertised as new. There were no materials in box that were supposed to be there. Disk for 2 years free internet security (missing) no instructions, booklet, anything (missing). Called HP and they said product in not under warranty. Wrong answer. This is the second bad experience I have had purchasing items through Amazon's partners. Ordererd dancing something for my daughters Iphone twice and never came. You did refund that transaction.
Summary: I like this laptop. It seems very fast and the SSD helps the performance, I wish I had a SSD on my desktop. PROBLEM: 1. The screen doesn't angle back very far. I would like to open the screen further on occasion. POOR SUPPORT: It came with Norton Internet Security pre-installed. However, it expired about a month after I got it. It was supposed to be a 2 year "free" subscription but it was NOT.
Summary: First, the good stuff: 1) Good sound system 2) HDMI output 3) Bright screen 4) Fast startup (SSD drive) Then, the absolutely awful: 1) Bluescreens constantly. Seems to happen whenever I want to do something hardware-related, like video conferencing, installing HP drivers, unplugging USB devices, etc. I have given up completely on updating any hardware drivers. 2) Awful touch pad.
Summary: I bought this laptop Jan. 7, 2012 as a gift for my wife, a Network Engineer. She initially was excited but that ended 15 minutes out of the box. The touchpad has never worked properly though she has been able to get by mostly by using an external mouse. It currently blue screens whenever we try use anything but the most basic applications.
Summary: Beware the claims of Gorilla Glass protecting the display of this Ultrabook. I bought this laptop in August 2012, hoping to use its powerful features on the road for many years. The frequency of my travel changed since that time to the point that I rarely use the computer. Yesterday, I took it out of its protective sleeve and the padded briefcase where I had it stored to discover the top third of the display was washed out.
